I am happy to announce, that after a comprehensive performance review, the KU Council of Trustees and State System’s chancellor’s office have awarded President Hawkinson a five-year contract extension to begin at the conclusion of this academic year. Congratulations President Hawkinson and thank you for all you have done for Kutztown University over the last seven and half years. This is well deserved.

Planetarium Schedule Change

Due to forecasted inclement weather that will create hazardous driving conditions next Thursday, please note that the "Season of Lights" show will be presented 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 21, rather than the originally-scheduled Thursday evening.
     The "Season of Lights" show is quite good, so this schedule change will enable people to see it without the bad driving conditions.
